Real Madrid (i.e., proper football) comes to Seattle


Hot off the presses. Real Madrid (with David Beckham, Ronaldo, and other stars) will play an exhibition match against D. C. United in Seah^H^H^H^HQuest Field on Wednesday, August 9th. I wonder if it’ll be anything like the last soccer match I saw. At least let’s hope they’re ready to play instead of having tired themselves out playing video games.

Tickets go on sale today.

    Don’t you usually play "on" a field?

    He was preparing to write "Seahawks Stadium" which is apparently named the "Qwest Field".

    I’m from Madrid and a Real Madrid fan. :-) Raymond, have you bought your ticket yet?

    Wouldn’t that be Seah^H^H^H^HQwest Field (notice the w)?  I only knew this because it is like that in the post about the last soccer match you saw.

  6. It’s good to see growing interest in football ("soccer") in the US. Apparently almost 17 million people in the US watched the 2006 World Cup Final – 4 times as many as in 2002!

    [It’s amazing what you can find if you search the Internet. You should try it. -Raymond]
